SNAKEBITE: THE WORLD'S IGNORED HEALTH CRISIS

About the Documentary

From a Kenyan hospital patient to a rice farmer in India, victims of venomous snakebites are the faces of a staggeringly widespread global crisis the world knows little about.

The documentary Minutes to Die takes viewers to the homes and hospital beds of snakebite victims, to labs where scientists are developing new, improved and cost-effective treatments, to a pivotal meeting of public health officials at the World Health Organisation.

Unpacking the limitations of rural medical infrastructure, the economic challenges of antivenom, and the financial devastation to the families of snakebite victims - who are mostly agricultural workers and children - the film makes clear that this health issue is also very much an issue of poverty, inequity, and social justice.

Directed by James Reid and Produced by the Lillian Lincoln Foundation.
